Devil Creek Reindeer Gas Field

Summary Information

  • Operator: Quadrant Energy
  • Country: Australia
  • Location: 80km northwest of the port of Dampier
  • Production start: 2011
  • Partners: Santos
  • Type: Gas
  • Estimated Reserves: The Reindeer field proven and probable (2P) reserves are estimated at approximately 485 Petajoules of sales gas and 1.6 million barrels of condensate.
  • Production Volume:

Description

  • The development consists of an offshore gas field, Reindeer and an onshore gas processing plant, Devil Creek
  • Reindeer gas is produced via an unmanned, minimum facility wellhead platform located in 65 metres of water
  • The WHP is a four leg jacket with one skirt pile per leg and four level topsides with an integrated helideck location on the upper deck. A single 406 mm (16”) subsea and offshore gas pipeline links the WHP to an onshore gas treatment plant (the Devil Creek Gas Plant).
  • The raw natural gas will be processed and then supplied into the Dampier To Bunbury Natural Gas Pipeline. A second commercial product derived from the gas stream will be condensate. Devil Creek will initially provide up to 110 Terajoules (TJ/d) per day for the Western Australian domestic gas market and has been designed to process up to 220 TJ/d of natural gas
